Families and children continue to struggle during this difficult time. The “new normal” has left them feeling anxious, stressed and helpless and many are in crisis.
Children’s Harbor is committed to helping families and children in Broward County through their challenges with the launch of FREE in-home counseling, in collaboration with Children’s Services Council of Broward County.
“We understand that the struggle faced by some families is very real,” said Tiffani Dhooge, president and CEO of Children’s Harbor. “We can help. Our Family Support Counselors provide intensive in-home services, counseling and case management to strengthen family relationships. They can provide the tools, resources and support to help families heal.”
Counselors from Children’s Harbor will cover improving communication, child/teen behavioral problems, attachment and bonding, co-parenting, grief and loss, adjustment difficulties and economic hardships.
Available to Broward County residents, Children’s Harbor’s counseling services are available at no cost and completely confidential. Insurance is not required. Children’s Harbor family support counselors will make home visits and will follow all safety guidelines, including wearing masks and social distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, Department of Health and local and state government officials. Spanish speaking counselors are available.

About Children’s Harbor
Established in 1996, Children’s Harbor is a nationally accredited nonprofit agency with a mission to provide a safe harbor and support to at risk children, youth, and families-keeping brothers and sisters together, strengthening families, and guiding youth towards independence.
Children’s Harbor provides nurturing, family group homes for 24 siblings and 12 pregnant/parenting teens in the foster care system on our beautiful 8-acre campus in Pembroke Pines. These loving homes allow brothers and sisters and teen mothers and their babies to stay together during a turbulent time in their young lives. Children’s Harbor also helps prevent child abuse through our Family Strengthening Program. Each year, 200 families across Broward County that are experiencing crisis work with family support counselors in their homes to help support, stabilize and prevent the breakdown of the family. The Independent Living teams provide housing, life skills and wrap around support to teens who are aging out of foster care to guide them towards self-sufficiency and independence.
